Info from Licensor: "While on a fishing charter for Halibut, Salmon, Rock Fish and Ling Cod, we brought up a Giant Pacific Octopus holding on to the bait while fishing with large circle hooks. I pulled the octopus on board, and let him find his own way off - this has been done many times, though sometimes they are kept, I prefer to let them go. This is the first time I filmed it. Instead of crawling over the gunnel, the octopus decided to slip through the scupper, which is shielded on the outside, and about a 2 inch gap. The octopus was probably 6 feet or more from arm to arm, and they can squeeze through anything larger than their beak, the only 'bone' in their body."
